    Wow that's a nice buck. Congrats on the items, I'm sure you will always cherish them and remember your uncle.

    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

    That's great! It reminds us all to enjoy the hunts we have left and the legacy we have the opportunity to leave behind. Find that young in in your family and make a difference while you can.

    Awesome. Nothing like a family heirloom. My uncle was a great friend, and hunting companion. I miss him much and wish I could go hunting with him one more time. Take that gun out, have fun with it, and remember your uncle!

    I told my nephew on Christmas day that it'd be his when I leave. He was close to Fisty too. I could tell he was moved. We both teared up a bit. That meant a lot to me too. And I will hunt with it...and think of Fisty.

    I've got 5 grandsons a great grandson and 2 nephews and look forward to passing down what the men in my family passed down to me.

    Hey MM - I'm happy for you. There's no gun as special as one passed down from a loved one. And, the mount is just wonderful icing on the cake!

    It is a 30-30. My other Marlin is a 1984 in 44mag that I bought new in 2018. I'm recovering from knee surgery and haven't got to shoot either yet. Still on a cane. When I can get around without the cane I can't wait to take both rifles (carbines) out on the farm and check both out. In the next couple of days I want to copy a Boone and Crockett score sheet and see where it measures. Somebody asked me the other day and I'm curious. I'll post it on MO when I get it measured and see if it makes their minimum.
